Authorities say DMX has been arrested on drug and animal cruelty charges in Phoenix following an overnight raid on the rapper's house.
The Maricopa County sheriff's office says the 37-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, at first tried to barricade himself in his bedroom. He came out as a SWAT team entered during the early-morning raid Friday.
The indictment stems from an August search of the rapper's home prompted by reports of dogs being abused on his property.
DMX was also arrested Tuesday after speed-enforcement cameras captured him going 114 mph on a suburban Phoenix freeway.
